'My friend and I chose to stay at Greenbank Farm as we were riding out with the Friesian experience next day and the reviews looked good. We were met on arrival and shown to our room which overlooked the farm, the room was immaculate and fitted out beautifully, we had a great nights sleep and enjoyed a tasty home cooked breakfast next morning. Everyone was wonderfully friendly and accommodating I would not hesitate to recommend the B&B and look forward to staying there again. '

Lindsay Blackwood, May 2014

'Stayed for a long weekend in May; accommodation fully met our requirements as both clean and comfortable; lovely breakfasts with wide range of choice; welcoming hosts'

David Best, May 2014

'The accommodation is fabulous, spacious, ground floor, ideal for the more mature person who don't do stairs. Entrance hall, good sized bedroom with two seater leather settee, wardrobe and fridge. Hospitality tray with lovely cappuccino sachets and biscuits.TV on the wall with channels galore.
The en suite bathroom is very modern, with a great shower in the bath.
The view from the bedroom included a stable and the paddock with the gorgeous black horses in attendance, two ducks also black and Cato a 7 month old puppy the size of a Shetland pony but so soft. lol.
Breakfast at 9 in the farmhouse kitchen, with everything you could wish for including fresh baked hot croissants and various hot pastries, fresh fruits, yoghurts, cereals. Full English with fresh farm eggs and local produce or variations thereof nothing was to much trouble all beautifully cooked by Sandy.
The views at the front of the house were stunning and the place is so quiet apart from the clip clop and whinny of the horses which was delightful to hear.
We had a great experience and got to see one of the horses pulling the carriage and the stallion being taken to his field what a fabulous sight.
Take plenty of carrots and small apples as the horses loved them.
Everyone we met were friendly and chatty and I took lots of photos.
I would recommend this beautiful farm for an experience you will never forget.
Thanks to all concerned.'

Caitlin Ogilvie, April 2014

'My sister and I decided to stay at Greenbank farm for our birthday. We had a great time. The hosts are very welcoming and it nice to stay somewhere with real life rather than a sterile hotel! Seeing the horses each morning and being greeted by their friendly dog made it all the more friendly. It\'s about 20mins to walk into the centre of Cartmel which we did each day. Sandy our chef for breakfast was very attentive. It is a lovely place to stay if you want a friendly rural retreat.'

'I have been in Greenbank Farm for one night and what I could say about is that was one of the best accommodation that I have been before: warm and kind people, breathtaking landscape, large,clean and tidy bedroom, very comfortable, a great bathroom. They really think in every single details and made me feel very welcomed. And if you like horses there is no best place in the world to stay! I do hope to come back some day. '

'Just stayed at the most wonderful B & B. If anyone is thinking of going off to Cumbria you really should try staying at Black Horse Friesian's B & B near Cartmel, very reasonable price, lovely rooms and great views. You also get to look at Friesian horses when you step out your door, not to mention ducks and sheep. Pure heaven. Oh and the breakfasts are amazing.'

Lisa Drinkwater, September 2013

'I had the most perfect week with Tracey and Rynardt at Black Horses Friesians... Perfect people, wonderful horses, picture perfect location and fab accommodation. The memories will keep me warm at night for years.'
